NRG Systems Introduces Next Evolution of its Solar Resource Assessment System
Hinesburg, VT (USA)—NRG Systems, manufacturer of measurement equipment for the global renewable energy industry, has released the next version of its Solar Resource Assessment system, now with a choice of pyranometer to support ISO-compliant solar resource assessment campaigns. The system is used to measure the potential of a given site to produce photovoltaic solar power on a utility scale.
“On-site measurement is increasingly important in solar resource assessment,” said David Simkins, business development lead at NRG Systems. “Using satellite data alone to assess the potential of a site can have an uncertainty of 10% or more. Adding on-site measurement can greatly improve accuracy, lower uncertainty, and directly translate to lower project risk.”
Along with the low-cost Li-Cor LI-200SZ photodiode pyranometer, NRG Systems now offers a ISO 9060-compliant Hukseflux LP02 thermopile pyranometer. Other sensors can be used with the system as well. The new system also includes plane-of-array booms, standard with each pyranometer to allow for flexible configurations to match the prospective angle of the PV panels. At 2.3 meters (7 feet), the tower is also slightly shorter than the first version for easier maintenance and installation.
Easy to transport, assemble, and install, the system ships free via surface freight and is backed by NRG Systems’ technical support and two-year warranty. Information requests and orders can be placed today by contacting email@example.com.
